this model gives a little too boom to the afternoon forecast, but i want to show you what it gives us here. with spotty showers passing through the afternoon hours, you see just a couple little orange cells that show up that indicates that because of some of the afternoon heating, we can't rule out a spot storm developing. for the most part, this will be a much more quiet forecast. much, much more quiet forecast than yesterday and a mostly dry forecast as well. otherwise, these spot showers start to break apart into the evening hours. we're looking at dry conditions as we go overnight this evening. forecast high temperatures, most of us around the low to mid 80s. 85 in center city and somerton. lansdale at 84 and allentown at 83. some of the spot showers i was talking about. easton at 83 as well with a mix of clouds and sun. in new jersey, low to mid 80 low 80s across much of the jersey shore. in delaware, wilmington and smyrna at 85, smyrna, and rehoboth beach a little cooler.
82 degrees. now we're jump to monday to tuesday. this is when we'll see a better chance of rain. monday is mostly sunny out there, but you see some spot showers to the north around the evening hours. then we go into your tuesday. a clear commute, but tuesday afternoon that's when we may see some rain and pockets of heavier rain move through as well. that will be by tuesday late day and into the overnight hours. so, we're looking at the chance of rain tuesday, but otherwise, a pretty mild forecast. drier monday. dry wednesday into this. and even notice a dip in temperatures. only 78 for the high tuesday. but we will see the temperatures pick back up, 90 by thursday, and by friday, into the weekend a chance of thunderstorms across the forecast. >> should be pretty pleasant today if you're looking for something to do. a bucks county church will be hosting its second annual padre pio festival. the event will include a special mass and a procession through the surrounding neighborhood. the festival celebrates padre

out civilly and diplomatically. >> about 200 people showed up to this town hall. senator casey, by the way, is up for re-election next year. last night, the chairman of the republican party of pennsylvania responded to senator casey's town hall and some of the comments he made. the statement says in part, sadly, bob casey's march to left continues, as a senator whose state is facing sky-rocketing premium costs it's disappointing that bob casey continues to play political games instead of working across the aisle. >> a little earlier this morn, i spoke live with "meet the press" moderator chuck todd about the health care bill and its chances of getting enough republican votes to pass. >> walk us through the prauz in the week ahead. how is this going to play out? >> well, look, i think it's going to be less of a policy debate and more of a political debate. what do i mean by that? if you just looked at this on policy and looked at the complaints that the moderate republicans have and conservative republicans have, you can't write a bill that
would appease both sides and get you to 50. the only way mitch mcconnell is going to get this passed is by making a political argument and trying to persuade skeptical republican senators that the base of the republican party, they don't care about the details. they care about the results. and they want to see some form of an attempt at repeal and replace. >> chuck todd will be sitting down with senators bernie sanders and ron johnson to discuss the health care bill. that happens on "meet the press" at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. next, up, up, and away. down the shore. just ahead, new airborne technology tested to keep you safe if you have ever trouble calling 911 during an emergency. also, a permanent part of philly, why the city chose its south broad street block to honor the members of boys ii men.

street, our legacy is plastered on the street sign for the whole city to see throughout generations. >> one of their top singles is the end of the road, but in this case, it's just the beginning of boys ii men boulevard. >> this is where we're from, what we're about. we have taken philly everywhere with us and we'll continue to do that forever. >> on july 4th, the grammy-winning group will be honoring during the celebration of freedom ceremony at independence hall. part of the week-long wawa welcome america festivities we'll be bringing to you live right here on nbc 10. >> in an emergency, every second counts. that's especially true when you can't reach 911 on your cell phone. bad signal. coming up next, how first responders in our area are testing new technology from above to keep us safe.
today may be the day to get in the pool, you haven't done it yet this summer, it's looking nice out there. krystal klei has details for us. very different picture from yesterday. >> absolutely. way better conditions than what we saw yesterday. that's going to be the case throughout the entire day. it should be a nice sunday for us. just some isolated spot chances of showers in the afternoon. even that looks like it will be spotty at best. i want to show you pictures outside. we're going to go all over the place. eastern pennsylvania, blue skies and spotty clouds over to frawley stadium. looks very nice as well. an away game for the blue rocks team. what we're looking at is blue skies and spotty clouds. we have gone from the lehigh valley to delaware. let's go to new jersey. same deal. blue skies, thin clouds in place. now we will look at philadelphia where we see just a light breeze out there right now. and overhead, bright skies to kick off our sunday morning. we're looking at a mix of sun and clouds through the rest of
today, even down to the jersey shore. temperatures at the jersey shore, 78 degrees in cape may courthouse. 79 in dennis township, and at atlantic city. summer's point, almost 80 degrees there. i think the highs we'll see today right up against the shore line will be close to low 80s. maybe higher once you get more inland, but overall, a nice shore forecast. hour by hour, looking at just the possibility of some spotty rain moving throughout the afternoon. so here we go as we get to the afternoon hours. you see, i just tracked through the entire p.m. hours until we get to the evening time. little spots of green picking up, and i think even this might be a bit too much. still, when you have heating, a little lingering moisture, there's a possibility, especially north and west of the corridor for showers. by 7:30, most spinning out and looking clear this evening. can't rule out with the afternoon hours one of those spot showers turning heavier in
nature briefly. it's not a washout by any means for anyone. you don't have to cancel any plans you may have for this afternoon. high temperatures down by the shoreline, a nice day to be down there. mix of clouds and sun leaning towards the sunshine. 82 degrees for rehoboth beach. 83 in avalon and 82 in beach haven. 58 to 68 for the water temperature. wave heights about three to four feet, and rip current risk is low today, which is good news when you hear that. three-day outlook across all of our neighborhoods. we're going to be on a downward trend with our temperatures for the next several days. today in philadelphia, 85 is the forecast high. we're mostly sunny on monday, 81 degrees, and down to 78 on tuesday, which is considerably below average. we will see some showers late day into the evening. in the suburbs, 84. same deal, down to 70 through tuesday. in the lehigh valley, 78 tomorrow and 75 by tuesday with rain passing by.
new jersey at 85 today. the shore at 83. and delaware at 86 degrees. tomorrow, right near 80 and mostly sunshine. tuesday, across the board, into the 70s. >> talk about a late night in arizona. the phillies got some pop from pitcher ben lively, but it came from the plate, not the mound. at 25, lively became the youngest phils pitcher to homer in a game in more than 20 years, but the diamondbacks, they had some power of their own. take a look. yeah. jake lamb. the d-backs went on to beat the phils 9-2. same teams back at it in phoenix this afternoon. now here's the rest of your sunday morning sports. hey, hey, good morning to you. danny pommells from csn. flyers general manager had a busy day yesterday, making two
